Police said in an email alert that the man tried to take the victim’s wallet from his pocket and, after the elderly man resisted, “physically attacked him.”

The man suffered serious injuries, including a laceration on his face and a fractured back, according to police.

The suspect fled on foot. He is described by police as a black man, age 40 to 50, 6 feet, 240 pounds, short hair and mustache.

I didn't use any vulgarity, I just used initials, take it for what you think.

I hear the older gentleman is on life support and has a fractured back among other damages; when he's caught I prey that he resist so the police can beat him like a piñata, then haul him off to jail.

The elderly gentleman that was attacked passed away this morning. Please keep his familiy in your thoughts. Peace.

My God, I hope they catch this monster soon, i wish business would spend a few more dollars and buy cameras that would give a clear image.

My sympathy goes out to the family.
